    Police raid a Kingdom Hall in Norway of Jehovah's Witnesses and question elders.

    Jehovah's Witnesses want to cooperate with the police and explain why they have an arc of alleged crimes. They claim that their elders are priests and must maintain confidentiality ...

    However ... The Watchtower Headquarters does not ask elders to refer to themselves as priests, that would be a disfellowshipping offense. And they do not ask their elders to maintain confidentiality ... they must give the information to high ranking officials within the Watchtower hierarchy.

    There is more going on in Norway at this time.

    Seems like they were right, the governments go after “false” religion first.

    The elders were interagated about the alleged crime , probably with a representative and the with the whole thing being recorded and will be allowed to provide evidence unlike when they interagate anyone in a judicial meeting.

    Confidentiality , the whole body of elders etc will be made aware of any confidential meeting you have with the elders.

    Would somebody please put a copy of that letter translated into English ?

    I could not get to it on this device.

    It's funny how they throw the priest hat on whenever they need to wear it. Priests my ass. I mean... they act and are priests in practice, but then they refuse to use that title until the police come knocking.

    Even though I realize why the Org tried so hard to keep its pedo problem on the down-low...

    ...I still occasionally catch myself asking "HTF did they not think this would ever come back to bite them on the ass???"
